Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” Now Online: 1999 – Present

dailyshowlogo3.jpgListen closely. What’s that you hear? It’s the sound of American office productivity taking it on the chin.

Yesterday, “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” put its entire video archive online (see The archive goes back eight years. It’s completely free. And it’s all highly searchable. To get a feel for what this video trove offers, you can spend some time watching these classic Daily Show moments.

As you’d expect, the video archive includes no shortage of funny bits, including when Stephen Colbert announced his presidential bid earlier this week (see below), and when the show riffed on Al Gore’s Nobel Peace Prize last week. But, mixed in, you’ll also find some of the show’s more serious moments. Take, for example, when Jon Stewart asked John McCain the hard-nosed questions about the Iraq war (here and here) that most journalists won’t, and also when the show first returned to broadcasting after 9-11. It’s all here. And apparently a similar site for The Colbert Report will be launched somewhere down the line.
